There are plenty of movies released that I am perfectly happy knowing everything about before they ever show up in a theater. Then there are those films that I try to know nothing about because I imagine they will be such finely-tuned experiences that I don't want to deprive myself of that pleasure.
Such is the case with Guillermo Del Toro's new film, "Crimson Peak," his latest film, and while I did watch the trailer, I feel like I still know next to nothing about it, which I love. After all, we don't get a new movie from Del Toro every year, and this one in particular marks a sort of collision of the two different filmmakers that Del Toro can be. There's the guy who makes these big fun crazy blood-filled bags of popcorn that don't really look like anyone else's idea of what a mainstream movie is, and then there's the guy who makes lovely small-scale Spanish-language films that play like fever dreams full of ghosts and heartbreak.
